A former Mayor of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Kojo Bonsu, has wondered whether the government’s policy of bringing food stuffs from the villages or farming communities to the cities, especially Accra, to sell is sustainable.
In his view, the policy is just noise that is being made by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA).
“Can they sustain it? It is just doing some noise,” he said in an exclusive interview with Johnnie Hughes on TV3 Thursday November 17.
MoFA has introduced a Pilot Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) Market at its premises.
There is mad rush for foodstuff at Makola as the ministry of Agric moves the PFJ market to Makola.

The operations of the market started effective Friday, 11th November, 2022.
This forms part of government measures to mitigate the impact of rising food prices on real incomes of Civil and Local Government Workers.
This was announced in a statement issued by the Ministry on Thursday November 10.
The Ministry seeks to bring the initiative to the kind attention of workers.
The Model for deriving the intervention involves ensuring the availability and affordability of Food Products.
